Animal Club

Please note that we are briefly pausing our SPCA Animal Clubs - in person and virtual.  We will be up and running again very soon!

One of the best ways for children to learn about The SPCA is through repeat visits to the classroom. Our SPCA Humane Educators can visit your classroom regularly to teach lessons covering topics such as safety around animals, responsible pet ownership, pet training, and so much more! Lessons are centered around respect for all living things and help develop core values such as responsibility and compassion. All clubs are tailored specifically to your class’s age and needs.

What is included in Animal Clubs:

  • Lessons covering all aspects of living with pets and wildlife
  • Presentations, crafts, storytime, and interactive activities
  • Visits from adoptable shelter pets
  • Cost: There is no cost for this program, but we encourage charitable giving

Virtual Animal Club:

The same Animal Club experiences you love are available via Zoom or Google hangout! Have an SPCA educator join you in your classroom via an online platform for fun and exciting presentations about the SPCA and all our friends. Email us now, as spaces are limited!

Not a teacher, but want to take advantage of this fantastic resource? Have your child’s teacher contact our Humane Educators at (831) 264-5434 or email us to discuss setting up a club!

*Please note that scheduling a club - virtual or in-person - is subject to SPCA educator availability.  Please also note that all animal visits are based on our current shelter population and the safety and comfort level of both our animals and program participants.  We have contingency plans in place should we not have pets who are comfortable with children, large groups, etc.
